Salary Listing and Prior Years’ Adjustments

Share This Page:


You can view your New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS) salary listing and prior years’ adjustments online through the Salary Listing (SL) and Prior Years’ Adjustments (PYA) application.

Salary Listing

The salary listing is a record of your employees who were members of NYSLRS during the last fiscal year (April 1, 2017 – March 31, 2018). This listing reflects the salary and days worked that you reported, and any adjustments processed through April 19, 2018. Any adjustments to fiscal year end (FYE) 2018 or previous fiscal years that are processed after April 19, 2018, will be reflected on your FYE 2019 prior years’ adjustments report.

The following fields appear on your salary listing: Location Code, Report Code, Employer Name, Fiscal Year, Retirement System, Plan, Plan Description, Option 1, Option 2, Option 3, Tier, Registration #, Employee Name, Employee Salary, Days Worked and New Member Date.

Prior Years’ Adjustments

Prior years’ adjustments are triggered by salaries entered into an employee’s membership which were not previously reported through the monthly reporting process. They can be added if you submitted an Adjustment Report (RS2050) Adobe pdf. Our arrears or retirement benefit calculation units may also enter salaries they determine mandatory to a person’s membership if they find full credit wasn’t given. This action initiates a cost to you, the employer, for your share of contributions for these salaries, plus interest. An adjustment can also be triggered by an overpayment, which results in a refund credit, plus interest.

The prior years’ adjustments report reflects the adjustments submitted and posted to a member’s salary and service data through April 19, 2018. Contributions and interest are calculated on these adjustments, however, no money is due at this time. Any amount due will be noted on your 2019 estimate, and due when you pay your 2019 annual invoice. Your annual invoice becomes available to you in November and must be paid either by December 15 or February 1.

Please review these adjustments to confirm they agree with your records.

If Your Records Don’t Match

Salary Listing

If you think there is an error in any of your member’s records, please mail a Member Salary & Service Detail Request (RS2413) Adobe pdf listing the name, registration number and the last 4 digits of the Social Security number of the members involved, to our Member & Employer Services Bureau at the address on the form, or email the information to the Employer Billing Unit. We will then send an individual breakdown for each of these members based on what we have on file, including the monthly amount of salary paid and days worked, as well as adjustments through the date of preparation. If there is an error in our records, you will need to submit an adjustment online using our Retirement Adjustment Reporting (RAR) program, or you can mail an Adjustment Report (RS2050) Adobe pdf and an Adjustment Report Label (RS2050-A) Adobe pdf.

Prior Years’ Adjustments

If you disagree with an adjustment appearing on the report, email the Employer Billing Unit. They will review any adjustments you feel are incorrectly listed on your report.

A prior years’ adjustment might be incorrectly listed on your report for some of these reasons:

  • Some adjustments are keyed into the computer system manually and there may have been an error in the employer location code that was entered.
  • The salaries entered were previously reported under a different registration number for the member.
  • The salaries entered were previously reported on a monthly report by you (it is your responsibility to supply proof of this).

Plan Contribution Rates

In previous years, rates were provided with salaries to aid in the reconciliation calculation. Legislation that was enacted in July of 2015 requires us to use actual salaries rather than projected salaries when calculating invoices. This will eliminate the need for reconciliations and allow for improved budgeting and planning. You will not see a reconciliation on your 2019 invoice because your 2018 invoice was calculated using actual salaries.

Decremented Salaries

Decremented salaries are salaries that are reported for members who withdraw, transfer, retire or die during the fiscal year billing period.

Chapter 94, Laws of 2015 allows for billing based on actual salaries rather than estimated salaries. Decremented salaries are pensionable earnings and are included in your estimate, projection and annual pension contribution calculation. Your last projection, provided in August 2017, was based on salaries your employees actually earned for State fiscal year April 1, 2016 – March 31, 2017. The inclusion of pensionable decremented salaries is taken into account when plan rates are calculated.
